    Boiling off water in your engine oil? Iíve never heard of such a thing. Wouldnít there need to be some kind of vent?

    Oh, is that what the old PCV valves did? Back when I was a kid working at Jiffy Lube, we used to sell those things like crazy.

    Ambient temperature apparently has a big effect. Now on the same commute, I struggle to go over 203℉ oil temperature.
    Mostly I am at around 195-200℉. Are these temps good in the long run for the integrity of engine oil? Shouldn't it be at least 212℉ (oil temp) to boil off water?
    I'm not really trying to be a smart ass, but do you have the only Jeep in Vegas?

    I'm sure you'll be just fine. I think you're obsessing just a tad. They test these things in extremes worse than what you're seeing. Turn your gauges off & enjoy the commute and your free SXM radio!
